    I have been wearing the Nike Vapor IIIs for a while, and a few days ago the show fell apart. Ripped mesh, holes in the sole. It was a good run but now its time for a new shoe

    I wore a 9.5 in these shoes.

    What I liked about this shoe-

    -Light.
    -Looks
    -Good Court Grippage

    Dislikes
    -Slightly narrow for my feet.
    -Slight cramping in the toe box( Both width and Height)
    -Under cushioned


    I would like a recommendations on what new shoe I should get. Lets just say I have enough saved up to get any shoe so price inst a factor this time.

    I dont care about brand just want a good performance shoe.

    PLEASE HELP

    Just based on what your asking about I would take a look at the Asic Gel Resolutions. Good light weight shoe that has some room width wise especially in the toe box.

    I've got the Vapor IV and used to wear the III. The IV has a little more cushioning around the ankle, more lateral stability, and a bit more toe room.

    I wear 9.5 also. I'm a Vapor guy all the way, but if you don't like the III, look elsewhere.
